M&S suspended website after it showed other customers’ details
Marks and Spencer suspended its website last night after it allowed customers to see each others' details when they logged into their own accounts.
The chain says it was not hacked and the problem was caused by an internal error, which forced it to close down the website for two hours.
Personal data, including names, dates of birth, contacts and previous orders were shown although full credit card detail were not.
‘Due to a technical issue, we temporarily suspended our website yesterday evening. This allowed us to thoroughly investigate and resolve the issue and quickly restore service for our customers. We apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused,’ says a spokesman.
